Singapore tower lets residents take their zest for autos to a whole new level

Why You Need It

Park that favorite vehicle where it belongs—in the living room. At the Hamilton Scotts, located in Singapore’s central area, residents can admire their motorized treasures from the couch. The garage was the design driver for the building’s 56 luxury residences, with each suite featuring a car porch separated from the living room by a glass wall. Show off a McLaren or Lamborghini like the artwork it is, and never worry about parking availability or security again.

Why It’s Special

The Hamilton Scotts tower rises 30 stories and is within walking distance of the famed Orchard retail and entertainment district, so owners can leave their autos on display at home. The developers, who opened the building in 2012, turned parking into an experience. The Hamilton Scotts has two biometrically controlled car elevators. Residents pull their pride-and-joys onto a turntable in a staging area, exit the vehicle, and an automated system does the rest. The roadster slides into the en suite sky garage at about the same time the driver sits to relax in his personal auto museum showcase.

What It Costs

Reignwood Group, a China-based multinational enterprise, purchased the unsold units of the Hamilton Scotts in 2013. Three-bedroom residences, with two-car sky garages, have sold for between US$6.7 million and US$9.5 million, while penthouses, each with four-car sky garages, list for US$24 million.
